 トータス(Tortoise)。09年フジロック(フィールド・オブ・ヘヴン)では小雨の降る中での演奏はまだ記憶にも新しいがそのレポートも一緒に見ていただきたい。

 彼等の音楽を言葉で表現するこは非常に難しのだが、その独特のサウンド・スタイルは「シカゴ音響派」と呼ばれ、ジャズ、ロック、ポップス、現代音楽が一緒になったようなそれまでにはない新しい音楽「ポストロック」ともいう新しい形を作った先導者として知られている。

 心斎橋クラブクアトロでのライブは昨年に発売した「ビーコンズ・オブ・アンセスターシップ (Beacons Of Ancestorship)」に収録されている楽曲が中心でツインドラム、シンセサイダー、ベース、ギター、木琴などデジタルに録音されたDTMなど様々な種類の音が何層にも重ねられて、会場を大いに盛り上げていた。

 なかでも驚いたのが、バンドが奏でるグルーブ感だ。今まで聞いた数々の音楽の中でも群を抜いてその一体感に
驚愕してしまった。力強さや繊細さを兼ね備えた世界に酔いしれた夜だった。
